The Fateful Voyage of the George and Anne

in Miscellaneous

Whether you think that the Irvine's aboard the 'George and Anne' are our people or not, it is a horrific story nevertheless and well worth your time in reading. Bear in mind that this ship was only 90 tons while the replica of the 'Santa Maria' docked next to the city hall here in Columbus is 100 tons. This was a tiny ship into which were crammed 250 people including the passengers and crew. The ship was chartered by Ephriam McDowell who was not only kinsmen to the Irvines, he was their brother-in-law and business partner in the linen mills at Gleno. A good read and food for thought.
